Zebra Mu “Aquarius Traits” Box Set

QCS_117 Zebra Mu “Aquarius Traits” Box Set: C15, s/sided Microcassette MC60, Tape Loop and Reel-to-Reel Loop (edition of 8)

Noise and magnetic tape spectacular elegantly presented in a wooden box! The C15 documents two new contrasting recordings, side a: frenzied Harsh Noise, side b: delves into tape loop manipulation and microphone weirdness. Various live recordings are captured on the microcassette, a mix of playing anti-records, junk metal, shit drone etc. The tape loop documents two (very short) recordings from an amplified craft knife blade, the reel-to-reel loop is a wedge of lo-fi mono Harsh Noise fun!

All components are presented in a hand-painted metallic blush gold wooden box, art work and information is fixed to the top and underside of the lid. Stickered cassette is wrapped in a blue or yellow paper insert with art work printed in magenta ink. Stickered microcassette is packaged in a clear case with a recycled paper cover. Two second tape loop is displayed inside a plastic craft knife blade holder. Twelve second reel-to-reel loop is protected inside a clear cassette case wrapped in a page from the 1973 edition of the Hi Fi Year Book. Two colour A5 paper inserts are also included.

Blue Spectrum created this confrontational slice of noise sourced from playing the Anti Reader’s Latex Digest and glass! In the artist’s own words:
“I thought of the latex as a metaphor of flesh and playing it was destroying it, through pain, sex, drugs etc and that’s why I added the glass”

Dead Body Collection: This Is The Hell That You Created For Me 3″CDr is out now! Sonically a little different from DBC’s previous recordings, this release is inspired by the artist’s own personal hell and it’s wall noise at it’s best in my opinion.
